this fight of the middle class comes at a time when the president is on the defensive and lost some ground in key areas. cnn orc poll tonight shows the president's lead is half a point outside the margin of error. last month he was leading with nine points. we told you last night about a pew poll which shows romney leading obama. you can see also barely outside the margin of error. in that same poll, the president's 18-point lead among women disappeared. he's now running even with romney. so who is winning this vital war over middle class tax cuts? rah ham salon joins us and john avlon, senior political columnist at "newsweek" and "the daily beast." this debate over $5 trillion and what you're trying to do and on the backs of the middle class, this isn't just about a number and who is using a number specifically in what way. it goes to the heart of whether the president is going to win. >> in 2008, barack obama did something incredibly brilliant. he actually managed to outflank the republicans on taxes, which was their biggest, most potent issue for literally decades, by saying, hey, if yo
like this. he would maintain our current level of defense spending over the next eight years. he would spend way more than a cold war-style drawdown. way more than the sequester, but he would treat the budget as the new normal with slight increases over time. that's the obama plan for the biggest single thing on which we spend discretionary money. mr. obama's opponents, on the other hand, the math ticket, the hard-nosed practical numbers guys, their plan for defense spending looks like this. ta da! that's what mitt romney is proposing for military spending. an otherwise enormous amount of money. this is what they are planning on doing. the highest level of military spending since the korean war. because, you know, forget your hope and change. what the country needs is math, math, math. how does the ticket plan to balance this giant plus sign contained in their plan? this massive increase in government spending. where does the minus come from if they want to increase spending by that much? this was the scene today in a place called van meter, iowa. just outside des moines. this is what
to refurbish a full abrams tank that even the defense department admits it doesn't need. all part of the fight over defense spending cuts that we have been talking about on this show rather obsessively for the past year. the $1.2 trillion in sequestration cuts take effect on january 2nd and about half of that sum is going to come from defense, making it a major election year issue. >> they're looming across virginia, cuts to national defense that threaten nearly a million small business jobs. tim kean supported the washington budget deal that got us here. a deal that destroy over 500,000 jobs in the defense industry. >> so if defense spending is such a big issue this year, why are we on the hook for those tanks? drew griffin from our special investigations unit is "outfront" with the story. >> reporter: it's a remarkable sight, parked in the california desert. more than 2,000 of them, row upon row of m-1 abrams tanks, built by general dynamics beginning in the 1980s. most of them are still ready to roll. so when the u.s. army's budget folks sat down to make some tough decisions about what to c
, defense ening. here's a little of what you're so upset about. mitt romney said it today. >> in a place like syria for instance, we should through our partners in the region, work to identify dissidents within syria that are responsible people, try to bring them together, provide weaponing and funding and they can promote their agenda. >> provide funding and weapons for them so they can defend their agenda. >> i have two questions. number one, when we get involved with war or providing weapons, it needs to go before congress. the constitution says that is the prerogative of the legislatures. it's difficult to know who friend and foe are. over a decade now in afghanistan. we have trouble telling friend from foe. the people we're training, the afgh afghan soldiers, are turning their weapons on us. so, how are we supposed to know, who is our friend and foe? there's a significant christian population in syria. they fled from iraq after the war began. they felt it was safer to be under assad. what is that christian population saying? many news reports say they're unsure whether they want to
of defense and the national security council. prior to becoming chairman, he served briefly as the army's 37th chief of staff. general dempsey is a bit of an unexpected appointment. he had just been sworn in as the army chief of staff a couple of months prior, but when the nomination process for another candidate stalled, general dempsey was called to serve a grateful nation, and he has done so with distinction. since taking the chairman's job a year ago, the 37-year army veteran has made headlines by dealing with the infamous quran-burning pastor by calling him up and asking him to withdraw his support for the anti-muslim video that sparked protests across the middle east. he expressed disappointment over the navy seal who published an unauthorized account of the killing of osama bin laden. he said an israeli attack on iran would clearly delay but probably not destroy iran's nuclear program. he has stressed the need to retool the military for a postwar world with smaller pentagon budgets, and most recently he has spoken about the need to turn up the volume on ways to help war veterans reint
and be our enemies in the middle east middle east wonderworks are not backed up by aids. when our defense spending is being arbitrarily and deeply cut and we have no trade agenda to speak out. and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership, but opacity. >> host: it garnered a headline yesterday. hope is not a strategy. how much of his speech was against president obama and what he has done and how much was laying out his own trajectory and agenda? >> guest: well, i think in his role as a challenger, this really is about a critique of the obama administration. that is a common topic of calendars. the critiques of the president public foreign policy. there are differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. those are subsequent. much to the surprise, even some of his own advisers at the time, but rather than backing away from he has continued to emphasize that and say basically that he has emphasize -- emphasize that descending supplies into afghanistan, which has become a significant issue. we're example, >> that is a serious difference. there are others
to the government yesterday asking specifically to rehaven't the cuts to military and defense spending. those cuts are built into the across-the-board spending reductions that will be triggered if congress doesn't pass a budget by the end of the year. the governor said virginia would lose more than $32 billion in product and labor income if the cuts go through. >>> leon panetta said the u.s. sent troops to the border of syria and libya for possible cross-cultural violence. the u.s. has been working with jordan to monitor chemical and biological weapon's sites in syria and to have them deal with refugees pouring over the border from syria. the u.s. will, the u.s. presence will establish a headquarters and beef up jordan's military capabilities should violence erupt on the border. >>> fireworks at a hearing on capitol hill today. trying to defend the obama administration's handling of the terrorist attack on the american consulate in libya. the attack killed a u.s. embass door and three other americans. tom fitzgerald is following this. this is a political battle. >> reporter: it really has and show
bennett said she expected defense lawyers to scrutinize her past but believes they went too far, requesting her search engine records to try to prove she had not been raped. now she's speaking out and telling her story to keep other victims from suffering the same. if you've been beaten, sexually assaulted and strangled, should it matter to the court what you've been googling? that's what the defense was demanding from victim jennifer bennett. they subpoenaed her journal, computer, even her search engine records. >> i drew my line in the sand and this is where i'm going to stick up for myself. i was not the criminal. so investigating me and my life, it just didn't seem right. it didn't seem just. >> reporter: her ordeal began in beautiful bend, oregon on a first date with a charming doctor she had met on match.com. thomas bray, a former anesthesiologist and teacher at a local community college. the date was going well so they went for a night cap at his home where bennett said he attacked her. the assault lasted five hours. >> she had been strangled. she had been beaten about th

reason to feel good about his campaign, where it is right now, after weeks on the defensive. as we noted he's rising in the polls, and seeing more enthusiasm inside the party and out on the campaign trial. one good night goes a long way but one good night does not amount to a free pass. many of the tough questions that he was facing before the debate remain on the table afterwards, and some of his answers during the debate are raising new questions. wolf blitzer spoke at length today with the republican candidate. here's a portion of that interview. >> were you surprised by the president's performance? >> i actually thought he described pretty appropriately and pretty effectively his policies. i just happen to disagree with those policies. we talked about the economy, he really is not proposing anything he hasn't talked about for the last four years. i think the challenge that he has is that his ideas are just not demonstrating the kind of results he would hope for, and people recognize that. >> are you confident, governor, that paul ryan will take on joe biden thursday night the way you
romney wants to take us back. >> you guys decided that the best line of defense was attack after debate and say basically yes, mitt romney had a good debate but it was all a pack of lies. and he actually responded to the main lie allegation which is this thing that he's going to be apparently charging a $5 trillion tax cut to the american people, and you've got a -- not personally by name, but we now know it was you. let's just play a clip of this and see what your reaction is. >> well, actually, the president's charge of a $5 trillion tax cut is obviously inaccurate and wrong, because when he says this, let's look at all the rates you're lowering, and then he ignores the fact that i say we're also going to limit deductions and credits and exemptions. he ignores that part. obviously that was corrected by his deputy campaign manager, who said that she stipulated that in fact, the $5 trillion number was wrong. it's completely wrong. >> he's talking about you there, stephanie. >> he is. >> he says that you said it was wrong. >> that's right. right. piers, i'm really glad you brought that u
it out in afghanistan, the powerful chairman of the appropriations subcommittee on defense, a republican helped continue the war by voting against the house amendment requiring the president to set a timetable for withdrawal. he's changed his mind. touched by what matt seton wrote him he asked that the letter be read into the congressional record and has been talking to other veterans, hearing from them what a real mess the war is. now he tells the tampa bay times, i think we should remove ourselves from afghanistan as quick a as we can. i just think we're killing kids that don't need to die. killing the kids that don't need to die. let those words sink in and this too. congressman young says, many of his colleagues in congress feel the same way he does but they tend not to want to go public. there are two more presidential debates. they will be yet another hoax unless someone puts the question to barack obama and mitt romney, why are we killing kids that don't need to die and then ask it over and again until they don't need to die and then ask it over and again until they have no choice

in the example of governor romney is suggesting that if we had spending cuts in defense, it would kill jobs in virginia. >> that is where you need leadership from the top. i will point back to the governors. successful governors do two things really well -- provide leadership and propose a bold initiatives to their legislatures. they also have a strategy or a blueprint, if you will, for economic growth for the future. those are the successful governors. >> no president has had the reorganization of authority since ronald reagan. it expired in the 1980's. i think that needs to come back. i would put back the authority lost after the nixon area -- era. there has got to be a combination. you cannot leave the size and the structure of the garment we have in place. this is a government functions on an old model despite a 20 per century technology model. it is painful and slow. look at the demographics of the federal work force. they are aging. attrition would take care of a lot of this, if it could be accompanied by risk management. president obama, the largest management he has -- he has run th
